What is registration and why is a deposit necessary? Registration is a two-part process of filling out contact information, including information about your pregnancy, and paying a deposit as a sign of good faith that you plan to take our classes. Since class size is limited to 3-8 couples (depending on class location) and demand for our classes is often high,  early registration assures your spot in the class of your choice and that we will have enough materials for everyone.

Early registration (3-4 weeks before start of the series) is encouraged. Early registration allows us to purchase and reserve your copy of the student worktext which is only available to registered, enrolled and actively participating students. Additionally, we can make sure we have optional books available if you elect to get them at class rather than on your own.

Discount: If either you or your coach are a student, active military duty or reserves, or are currently a fireman or EMT, you qualify for a 10% discount off total registration cost. Please be prepared to provide proof of status. Only one discount is available per registration.

How much does the 12 Week Series cost altogether? The total cost is $400, materials and resources. Our tuition is average compared to other certified Bradley instructors in state, and a terrific value compared to other childbirth classes that typically provide less than 15 hours of instruction. (You will receive about 24 hours of instruction in a Bradley Method®  course, similar to a semester long college class.)

What if I can't do a 12 week series? We have a work-around. Feel free to contact us about our most sought after series. We teach the same content in a more efficient manner than the standard series.

What is covered by tuition? Tuition covers the cost of your series of classes, the current official Bradley Method® Student worktext,  and many handouts used in classes. It also covers additional books (tax-free) if you pay for them along with your tuition. Note: Some health insurance plans and medical savings plans cover the cost of childbirth classes. Please check with your employer to see if you are covered.

Recommended Supplemental Binder: We provide a digital supplemental binder chock full of in-depth information for you to use as desired during the series. There is a refundable deposit of $60 on the binder to insure it is returned in a timely manner.

Supplemental Youtube: We have a youtube channel with a few private videos and many other public videos on our playlists complimentary to each of our classes. There is no charge for our youtube playlists. Additionally, we have online review materials available by request.
